Kingman is the mid-point of the longest remaining stretch of the legendary Route 66, which reaches east of Seligman and goes west to the Colorado River at Topack/Golden Shores.

Before automobiles became the primary mode of transportation, Kingman was a major railroad hub for the AT&SF railroad. These factors all combine to make Kingman a city rich with history.
